    Earthquake Ready presentation - advance registration

    Kenton Library

    The Pacific Northwest is expecting a 9.0+ Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake. Come learn what that will look like and how to physically and psychologically prepare for this major geological event. We'll walk through what to expect and how to prepare for each stage of a major earthquake: during the shaking, immediately after, and in the days/weeks/months following. You'll learn how to prioritize and customize your planning, as well as how to involve your neighbors in this important work. We'll also take a look at what's being done by our government and our schools to prepare for the Big One, and you'll hear what your local Neighborhood Emergency Team is doing to prepare for the quake.
